Mary Nash, MBA, CEP, Principal Consultant
When you work with me, you get a program developer, grant writer, and evaluator all in one. I will help you assess your organizational needs, obtain grant funding based on measurable goals and objectives, improve performance and measure outcomes through insightful evaluation. My integrated approach to program development and evaluation will help you fulfill your mission and do great work for the community you serve.
My work builds upon my background in nonprofit management, grant writing, and evaluation. As a Project Manager, I’ve been at the center of great collaborations such as the 413 STEM Academy, Berkshire Compact for Education, Berkshire Connect and Berkshire Wireless Learning Initiative. I’ve written successful grant proposals and have conducted evaluations for many education and workforce training programs.
Prior to my consulting career, I served as Executive Director of two non-profits, the Berkshire County Regional Employment Board and Boston Area Health Education Center, where I expanded programs and generated resources. I have an MBA from Boston University, a BA from Connecticut College, and a Certificate of Evaluation Practice and Certificate of Analytical Evaluation Methods from The Evaluators’ Institute of Claremont Graduate University.
I am certified in Massachusetts as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) – contracting with a WBE is not only a good thing to do, but it can get you extra points with competitive grants!
